No Eclipse For Us!

So this morning I did what I think most mums probably did and ran around making awesome space boots (by covering wellies with tin foil) and making a pin hole projector so that the kids could see the Eclipse safely and I also filled a box up with water in hope they could see the reflection through that too.
Needless to say it was completely pointless (maybe not the space boots as the kids bloody loved them!) but we couldn't see the eclipse at all as there were too many clouds, it went darker than usual but that was it.
The kids did have fun running around the garden though so not all was lost!
